Hell hath no fury….

Yes, Shakespeare said that of “a woman scorned.” But even the English bard could never have imagined the red-hot rage of multimillions of women who learned that the children they love and protect and would give their lives for were being taught by their local friendly teachers to hate themselves and hate their country.

As everyone now knows, there has been a massive eruption of nationwide protests as American women (and a few of their husbands) have descended on school board meetings across the country to protest the fact that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is now being inflicted on their children, starting in kindergarten.

They are telling the powers-that-be how much they resent having their children taught that America was founded on racism––and they don’t want this kind of false information used to warp the minds of their innocent children.

These impassioned mothers (and some fathers) insist that they themselves are upright American citizens who benefit America, who in many cases have been elected to high public office, and who pay their taxes. And they insist it is their prerogative—and not solely the role of racist teachers––to explain to their children the true history of our country.

Who can blame these women (and some husbands) for protesting and even yelling at the school board members and even “threatening” to take their children out of school for contaminating their innocent children with what they define as racist misinformation.


The whole point of Critical Race Theory is to prove to innocent school children that the triple evils in America––the Constitution, Capitalism, and Christianity––were all introduced by malevolent white men, and these “evils” are thus to be discredited or condemned.

What Critical Race Theory is really all about is destroying big, bad Whitey!—and hence America’s distinctive contributions to the world.

Whether it’s tearing down statues or burning books or telling white children that they were born evil racists and the products of generations of evil racists, the goal is to omit from the classroom the fact that the white men they are vilifying are the same white men who created the freest, richest, strongest, most generous nation in world history, the nation that multimillions of illegal aliens––at this very minute––are willing to sacrifice everything to come to and experience the American Dream!

You know, the same white men who banished the curse of slavery, although admittedly other white men––all of them Democrats––also created the viciously racist Ku Klux Klan, the Jim Crow laws, and uniformly voted against the Civil Rights legislation in the mid-1960s.

Come to think of it, Critical Race Theory should be renamed Corrosive Racist Training and be described as a course in systemic Democrat racism and its disastrous effect on our country.


Imagine how these protesting parents felt when they learned that Joe Biden’s pick of Attorney General, Merrick Garland, equated these desperate mothers (and some fathers) with “domestic terrorists” and ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to monitor them and punish them for exercising their constitutional right to free speech and for the mortal sin of protesting peacefully!

Garland’s menacing directive to the FBI is what writer Justin O. Smith described as "a piece of real fascist garbage.”

Good to know that a government watchdog group has now launched an investigation of Garland for his threats against public school parents across America.

In addition, after grilling Garland in a Judiciary Committee meeting a week ago, a principled legislator, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO), called for Garland’s resignation.

To add insult to injury, the parents then learned that Garland’s daughter is married to Alexander Tanner, the guy who co-founded––and is raking in multimillions of dollars from—Panorama, the company selling this racist junk to over 50 of the nation’s largest school districts, or, as the company describes itself, as supporting “13 million students in 23,000 schools and 1,500 districts across 50 states.”

Talk about Garland’s conflict of interest!

Yet further evidence of the incestuous leftist push toward Communism that parents across the country are now protesting is provided by author and journalist Jack Cashill, who reveals that a major essay for Panorama’s CRT “curriculum” was written by terrorist emeritus and Obama pal Bill Ayers!


This nationwide outrage of parents has been effective. As blogger Fred Miller documents, “It’s an encouraging sign that the execrable National School Boards Association (NSBA) has blinked and apologized for joining Merrick Garland in villainizing anti-CRT parents as ‘terrorists.’"

Miller continues, “Perhaps even awakened Democrat parents will be, in the long run, part of the most effective resistance we have against the Woke totalitarians. In the natural order of animals, vegetables & minerals, there is no more powerful force with which to reckon than angered Mama & Papa bears.”

The visceral anger of these parents is not only being expressed at school board meetings across the country, but it has gone viral on social media. Even confirmed, lifelong leftists were horrified and disgusted when the far-left candidate for governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, added his less-than-two-cents worth by stating: "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach"

Really? Here, Quisha King gets a standing ovation when she calls for a “mass exodus” from public schools.


In 1982, in Lawrenceville, Georgia, Tony Cavallo was repairing a 1964 Chevrolet Impala when the vehicle fell off the jacks it was propped on and trapped him underneath. His mother Angela miraculously summoned up such Herculean strength that she was able to lift the car high enough and long enough for two neighbors to replace the jacks and pull Tony to safety.

There is actually a name for this kind of astounding display of superhuman strength––it’s called Hysterical Strength—and it’s no surprise that it often involves mothers.

Why is that? It’s because bringing a child into the world––notwithstanding the creativity involved in law, medicine, architecture, astronomy, space travel, music, literature, art, gardening, etc.––is the ultimate creative act. Nothing comes close.

Writer, editor, and international blogger Ruth S. King suggests the following: “Like other efforts which led to political victories, dissident parents should coalesce behind a new movement named My Child, My Choice!”

That’s exactly what is happening! Today, the mothers of America’s schoolchildren are telling the powers-that-be that they will not allow their children to ingest the toxic, dishonest, racist brew of CRT. They are telling the innovators of this theory, the teachers who purvey it, the Attorney General of the United States, the FBI, and the President of the United States: Don’t contaminate my child with your hateful, racist, anti-American, anti-white poison….or else!
